City driving peeves?
When someone is making a left hand turn and they move into the right hand lane to help with the turn. WTF? Your driving a vehicle with power steering for crying out loud,there is absolutely no need to do this.

1. I know. You'd think they were driving 18-wheelers or something.
:eyes: Drives me crazy!

2. related
Asshat COULD pull to the right hand lane to make the right hand turn, but blocks right and left lane to wait for pedestrians-I don't mind the waiting for the pedestrians part, It's the blocking MY LANE part that i hate.
And how about pulling out of a parking space/lot in front of me (me doing 30, puller-outer doing 5-10), then slamming on the brakes to make the next turn... AAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGHH!

3. people who stop in the dead center or right side of their lane..
at a red light leaving no room to make a right hand turn without having to wait for the light to change. SHOW SOME DAMN COURTESY AND MOVE TO THE LEFT SIDE OF THE LANE!!! :mad:

4. running red lights
where I live when a light turns green, it is a guarantee that at least one, two, sometimes three cars will run the red. It used to annoy me but now I feel outrage since a friend of mine was killed by someone running a red back in May.

6. The guys who wash your windshield
will leave it dirtier. Some of these guys ignore you screaming NO at them.

And I hate when there are two lanes going into one lane at an intersection, and people in both lanes try to go forward. The left lane is obviously for turning left since you have to wait. The right lane is for going straight or turning right!

And a Rochester inner loop thing is when traffic goes from like 50 to 0 mph in a couple seconds so you have to slam on your brakes and skid to a stop. Because some asshole forgot that his exit was on the left.

I avoid the highways and inner loop in Rochester like its the plague. I'd rather take the slower side roads and get there intact.

7. I live in the Atlanta area and the traffic is horrendous
so I would have too many peeves to list. Everyone here is a lunatic on the road.

8. I'll have to agree re Atlanta
The roadways were obviously designed by someone who has never driven a car in their life. The city and the people are nice but driving there is a real challenge.

10. People who drive when they could just as well walk or take transit
are one cause of traffic jams. :-)
